Tidy Up Tuesday: Meal Planning Board

I've been using this menu board for almost 2 years and I don't know how I lived without it before!   I used to always go to the grocery store and buy things to make all kinds of new recipes and then I would get home and put everything away. By the time the week came and went, I would forget what I was supposed to make. So I ended up having all kinds of random food and it would go to waste. Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this!!

Now, before I go to the store, I plan dinners for the week and put them on the board. Then I make a list of everything I need so I only buy what is on the board...and my basics of course. And when each night comes around, I don't have to think about what I'm making for dinner. Plus, if I see I'm making say, chicken the next night, I sit it out the night before to thaw.

This board was SO EASY to make.

What you need:
12x12 Frame - I found mine at Hobby Lobby
12x12 Scrapbook Paper
Dry Erase Marker

The glass on the frame acts as a dry erase it!!  I've also seen people use these as chore boards.  Hmmm....I bet they make good "honey-do" lists as well!

I just found your blog and I love it! I wish I could do a meal planning, but my other half works crazy schedules! So it's normally me eating by myself! Such a cute idea!
